Sergei's loan finished fundraising,
but these similar borrowers just need a little more help to reach their goals!
A loan helped to buy motorized farming equipment.
Sergei is a hardworking farmer from Ukraine. Two years ago, he was cultivating a ½ hectare of land. A year later, he was cultivating 1 hectare of land. Right now, he is working on 2 hectares of cultivated land. He was able to achieve this phenomenal rate of growth thanks to his supportive family, who work in the fields along with him. Sergei is especially thankful to his wife, who works full time as a nursing aide at a hospital and still manages to help Sergei out in the field. Her salary alone is not enough to sustain the family. Sergei's biggest dream is to send his kids, who are 8 and 12, to university. In order to achieve this, Sergei needs to cultivate more than 2 hectares of land. He has 11 hectares of land but he cannot utilize all of it because of the limited farm equipment he owns. His family needs you to help them finance motorized farming equipment, which will enable the family to realize their full potential by cultivating their entire 11 hectares of land. In the near future, Sergei is hoping to purchase a small tractor to expand the variety of his crop. Currently he is growing vegetables but, after he purchases a tractor, Sergei hopes to grow grapes as well.
